This book bent my view of reality. I'm 59. I wish i'd read it at 19, and every 5 years thereafter. Everything else felt like dipping my toes around the edge of the pool. This was a plunge into the deep end. It pulled together a lot of things for me.
It has given me a completely different perspective and changed the way I experience my daily life. It has calmed me in an odd way. The feeling reminds me of how I heard people describe their experience after having an LSD trip (a good one). I had actually considered an LSD experience. Now I'll just reread this book.
The book asks you to examine a part of yourselves that we never ever do and that is our BELEIFS. As redundant as that may sound if you honestly think about that we don't examine what we believe. When I did I was amazed at what I discovered. Probably the first thing that you will scoff at or even dismiss is where the information is coming from. So I will say the first thing you need NOT to do is.. SHOOT THE MESSENGER. Because if you do that you more than likely you'll put the book down and not read it at all.
If you can suspend your DIS-BELEIF of the messenger long enough to read the message you will find that there is more truth than you thought in the message. The book is asking us among many other things, to examine things that we take as fact based on what we've been told as well as our own beliefs about whatever that may be and really see if what we beleve really is because it may not be what we believe it to be at all. And it usually isn't. Trust me I've tried it.
The book goes on to say that our lives and all the events in them are based on what we believe individually and collectively. And once we examine what we believe honestly we will discover truths that we thought were deep in our subconscious that would not be available to our conscience mind without long and expensive therapy. Not so everything is right there in plain sight of our consciousness. Another thing I really liked about the book was that it used scientific data throughout the book that we have excepted, as examples as well as religious dogma to shed new light on one of our oldest beliefs.
If you are ready to be taken out of your comfort zone and become a bit more SPONTANIOUS as the author makes reference to often, this book is for you and will cause you to think about all the b.s. you've heard, said, and THINK you know and believe. I could go on but I don't want to write a novella instead of a review I just want to give you a snap shot of what the material is about. The book gives you a different perspective on what you've been told and what may or not, really be.
There is no hocus pocus or ritualistic ceremony that you need to do. In fact the book will ask you to dismiss much of the ritualistic stuff that you have learned and to trust your own intuition that all of us posses and don't use or even know we have at our disposal. Everything that you need is already available. YOU..and the simple excercise suggested. It is a REAL JOURNEY of self discovery.
There are some differences and new info, but sometimes the material sounds like a review of something previously read. I gave it 5 stars primarily because it emphasizes the key point over and over: We create our own reality. What you have is what you called into being for yourself. If you want a different reality-then embody (think and feel) like you want that different reality to be. If you want your health restored, then believe yourself to be perfect and fully functioning, and send those vibes and energies into your manifesting desires. Create the image in your mind of what this new and better version of you and your life would be, and then replay that image and scenario over and over and over......every day.
Its a hypnosis technique of envisioning the future that you create in your mind, then walking into it, and FEELing what it feels like to BE THERE in that ideal future. How happy it makes you. How wonderful everyone in your life is there, and how great your life now feels as you walk into that ideal future YOU living there. Do this daily and you eventually walk into that happier, healthier you, ...in theory.
The saddest thing for me is that reading the book, which is composed of her husband's hand-written transcripts of her actual Seth sessions primarily occurring during the 1970's, is to witness Jane's health deterioration from pushing herself too hard, smoking, and not sure how much beer was required to initiate Seth's ease of oration but frequent requests for "another one" were noted. Not meaning to be judgmental, but in the 70's that behavior wasn't that unusual, but now, it seems a little questionable.
On some level what Seth says makes perfect sense, and on the other it's like "Really?....I'm just not thinking and emoting joy and happiness and health? That's my entire problem?" And yet, I believe that this IS our problem. The thoughts and emotions we hold daily are those that replay for us the next day and the next. It has made me more aware of how powerful and affecting our thoughts on everything are to our personal welfare and our social/cultural environment.
If you haven't read any of the Seth materials, this might not be the book to start with, but I will gladly add it to the others on my own shelf without regrets for the purchase. I don't always buy into channeled materials, but parts of this and the many other books that I have from her, ring true.
Within one month I started seeing dramatic results in my life from changing my beliefs.
What I thought were irreparable relationships were repaired.
The meditation on focusing a specific event into ones life works very well. This book really lays it out. It does not pull punches. it does not use kid gloves. Seth calls people out on standard BS that cripples our lives, gives a pathway out of negative beliefs, and wants you to be a self empowered creator of your own reality.
Highlight the exercises and actually do them. Thats where the real power is in this book.
